Published Jan 26, 2016It isn't uncommon for Japanese psych greats Acid Mothers Temple to pencil a trek around North America into their calendar each spring. As luck would have it, the band will be back to tour the continent in 2016 throughout March and April.
Much like previous years, the tour will feature the best known variant of the band's lineup: Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. The 33-date trip will predominantly keep the band in the United States, though three Canadian dates are present on the itinerary.
Audiences in Western Canada will be able to witness the group's psychedelic mastery in Vancouver on March 19 at the Cobalt and in Victoria at Logan's Pub on March 20. They'll return to the Great White North on April 1 in Toronto with a performance at the Garrison.
Acid Mothers Temple's latest release was Benzaiten, which arrived last year through Important Records and can be heard in the player below. Scroll down to see the band's entire list of North American tour dates.
